Mr. Boxy
Certification of notaries can be handled by a state office, or by the National Notary Association. The NNA has the specific requirements for your state:

There are a few things you will have to do regardless of where you apply:

Prove state citizenship: In most cases, you will just need to show that you paid in-state property taxes the previous year.

Post a bond: This can be bought from an insurance agent.

Pass a written test: The NNA provides local seminars, or you can get a study guide from your state agency.

Submit a signature: This signature must be written exactly as you want your name listed on your notary certificate. It will be kept on record for reference if there are any accusations of forgery.

Notary public is a public office; once you have completed the application requirements, you will need to be sworn in at a courthouse. Finally, you will need to buy a seal. Requirements vary, with some situations requiring an ink seal for copying, while others will need an embossed seal, proving the document is original. These will be covered in your notary test study materials.
